That's why I choose an e46 or the e36. They still look modern and relevant.

E36's are about as modern looking as MC Hammer pants.

Oh and on first glance I thought that X5 had a light bar on the roof.

The E46 pre-facelift coupe still looks pretty modern, probably because the M3 was never facelifted. The pre-facelift sedan, not so much.

My Ride: E46 325ci


My brother next to my old BMW 06 325ci. I decided to upgrade last month to the F32 435i; so, I'll hesitantly give him my e46. I love both cars a lot...Next mod on the F32 will definitely be summer tires the run flats blow.

Bump! Crappy cell pic, but I really like seeing E46s next to E90s.
